Traffic Offense in the Township of Plainsboro

A traffic ticket in Plainsboro New Jersey can have a much greater impact on your life than you might understand. The reason is because even a basic moving traffic offense like speeding or failure to observe a stop sign or light carries points, fines and leads to a spike in your cost to obtain automobile insurance. More serious Plainsboro motor vehicle charges like driving while suspended, driving without insurance and reckless driving involve even more serious consequences. That is why, even if you think you might be able to represent yourself in court, it is always a good idea to speak with an experienced attorney before you potentially jeopardize your future.

Marshall has been representing clients charged with traffic offenses in Plainsboro Municipal Court and the rest of Middlesex County for decades and our lawyers are available for free consultations 24/7.

Plainsboro New Jersey Traffic & Motor Vehicle Charges

The New Jersey Traffic Laws set forth many motor vehicle charges that someone can face in Plainsboro New Jersey. Some tickets/summonses arise more frequently than others in Plainsboro Municipal Court. Our lawyers include former municipal prosecutors that have handled just about every traffic offense you can imagine, including:

There are an array of penalties and collateral consequences that you face if you are convicted of these or another motor vehicle offense. Almost all charges result in motor vehicle points. For example, speeding 1-14 miles per hour over the posted limit results in 2 points, 15-29 carries 4 points and 30 or more results in 5 points. Reckless driving also triggers 5 points.  There are 4 points for improper passing. When a motorist accumulates 6 points, an obligation to pay surcharges in order to maintain their license is triggered. Twelve or more points result in administration of driving privileges.

Many types of Plainsboro motor vehicle charges can also result in a suspension of your driver’s license. For example, the revocation is one year for a first offense of driving without insurance and two years for a second offense. Possession of CDS in a motor vehicle requires a suspension of two years. Driving while suspended carries the potential for an additional period of suspension of six months.

Lastly, you can be sent to jail for a wide range of traffic summonses. There is a fourteen day jail term for a second offense of driving an uninsured vehicle. It is ten days for a third offense of driving while suspended and 180 days for a third offense for DWI. You can be incarcerated for ninety days for reckless driving.
